According to EURWEB, Police in Johannesburg have arrested five suspects in the killing of reggae star Lucky Dube, who was gunned down Thursday (Oct. 18) in the midst of an attempted carjacking.  Associated Press printed that police spokesman Eugene Opperman said the men were arrested Sunday morning and will appear in court Tuesday. Police also recovered two stolen handguns and a car allegedly used during the crime. Dube, who gained international attention in the 1980s with music criticizing apartheid, was killed after he dropped off two of his children at his brother’s suburban Johannesburg house. Dube’s friends told South African Sunday newspapers they believed it was a targeted assassination. But Opperman said police still believed he was shot in a botched carjacking.
